Altered Books Class Returns to Waterbury Center

Saturday May 2nd
1 to 5 pm -
One more time at Seminary Art Center!­­Altered Book Workshop -Giving new life to the page
For many the idea of marking up a book to make it into a piece of art seems almost sacrilegious. It is widely held that books, being the key to literacy and knowledge should be well read and then kept, for all time, on a shelf for others to enjoy. The unfortunate reality is that tons and tons of books end up in landfills.

This introductory workshop will teach you the basis skills you need to create your own altered book and offers an opportunity to explore your muse and to give new life to a discarded object.

Cost is $40.00 and $10 for materials - click for more info in a previous blog post or email for details!

Yay! Sure it will be a blast.

Thought of you yesterday. Saw a signed Duran Duran guitar for sale in an autograph shop :D
